It's even worse than it appears..
Challenging questions: Why don't journalists cover the Biden base? Do they even consider the possibility that there is one? Or do they think they are the base? I thought they weren't supposed to care who the nominees are? Why do they feel entitled to say one candidate should withdraw but not the other? Have any of them even thought this through? #
The debate got the presidential race to another level. It also caused the NYT et al to fully decloak. It was impossible to watch, but it was also honest. We all knew but pretended we didn't that Biden has the kind of trouble he has. We voted for him anyway in 2020, and we will again in 2024. And Trump, what he did was worse than lying, it's a con job, because as soon as he takes office he's going to surrender to Putin. And stop fighting climate change. And destroy what's left of our democracy. And open the concentration camps and make the Jews pay for it. Biden can be president, the news orgs have to decide to let him be and stop trying to control the rest of us. We can make this work. Not the Democrats or Republicans, the Americans.#
I just gave another $100 to Biden/Harris. We love Joe, come what may.#
This is my ideal for the size of a social network. I have actually had networks this size in the past. When it clicks, it's really great. #
  • Every day when I play Wordle, I present it as the work of fictitious character I created with the help of ChatGPT: Wordle Kitty. #
  • Now there's a family of Wordlers. A monkey, a bunny even Raines Cohen, a friend from the 80s in Silicon Valley. #
  • I'm using Facebook for this because my friends there are the people I want to share it with. #
  • The latest character is the Angry Old Gray Lady. She's horrible, evil, standing in the way of us getting back to America, for real, not the fascist con job from Maga Lardo. #
  • Wordle Kitty, the original wordler, a pioneer of new kitten culture.#
  • Wordle Bunny, loves fresh fruit and vegetables, speaks at the UN.#
  • Raines Cohen Kitty, a kitty in the form of Raines Cohen, of Berkeley co-housing.#
  • Peace Kitty, she speaks at rallies for America and peace. #
  • Angry Old Gray Lady, the NY Times is in the way. #
  • PS: I almost forgot Standards Kitty, Patriotic Kitty.#
  • New Yorker cover in 2016.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
